Just Grateful: When we let go of things that do not serve us, others come in. Same with people. The ones that are meant to stay, stay, despite any turbulence that may also come along. The ones that are no longer supposed to be in our lives, leave and follow their path. I need to thank 6 people today that made my day so RICH and such an awesome, day full of hope and joy. ( in the order I interacted with you today)
Thank-you for the 6:38 a.m. text - made my day - and yes we will journey together to improve women's lives in Toronto and beyond. I look up to you, and you changed my life with your passion to end homelessness. Of course, I was awake, and I can't wait till our meeting next week. Excited! So grateful to you.
To the one that put up my art work in her office, did not give up on me when I wanted to give up on myself, and called me today with details of the latest opportunity. I appreciate you. You changed my life with my home and I am so excited to be able to give back. So grateful to you.
My visit with the yellow coat "girl" - how do I tell you how much your support means to me? I am so grateful that you are in my life and your insights are so en pointe . that goose bumps ripple through each chat. Looking forward to next week's session. And a lot of win-win situations. I may even get another tattoo, you inspired me with our chat today. Maybe .... but maybe not. So grateful to you.
To the really cool, brilliant, forward-thinking, cross-fit dude with whom I finished sentences for a whole year, thank you for your like-minded sentences in your e-mail of today. You once said that our differences make us stronger - and you proved that today. I am humbled and so excited to change mindsets. Pivot 221? The last one! So grateful to you.
To the most interesting man I have ever met on "the street". Albeit, the street is Avenue Road. You intrigued me even more today. The project? Maybe .... "you should be so lucky"!
And lastly (but ever so not last) to the one who the Easter Bunny dropped off the yellow bag with a purple ribbon with instructions from the Easter Bunny not to open until Sunday! Your EB e-mail made me so smile. It was not me!! I maintain this. I am not the Easter Bunny. You taught me empathy by your actions .... and making me do all those empathy maps when we met. :) I look forward to coffee again on Friday mornings at the table by the window where you changed the trajectory of my life. UNITED - by open example. So grateful to you.
Today's act of courage is to write out these blessings of today. Miracles, really, each in their own way. But the true test of courage will be to actually send this URL to them. Another act of courage for another day.
